A much-overrated show. Far better Dark Stars & Other Ones can be heard from this period. The "Bear's Choice" acoustic songs are nice.
What is the point of talking about “if we didn’t have all these pristine recordings on the archive”? The fact is, we do! If we didn’t, you’d have no chance to utter such sentences.

Let a poor boy RIDE..
umm, having grown up in N.Y.C I can tell you every night
I always wanted to be in the coolest spot, whether that was hanging in the neighborhood, going to a local party or venturing out to hear some live music.
It is hard for me to imagine wanting to do anything else besides being at a show like this. (except maybe "Reaching on over my left shoulder")
The older stoners would talk in hushed tones about the good ol days, seeing shows at the Fillmore, Jerry in his prime. Duuuuuuuuuuaannnnnnnne.
Anyhow, i don't know i guess if somebody now has access to more pristine GD thru the Archives then most hippies ever got touring and tape trading --that somehow this might rate under a 5 spot. But seriously--- I freaking doubt it. Catch the feeling groovy jam slinking thru the Dark Star..
Also the taper running commentary adds a great touch.

Uncle John's Band
I don't wish to sound ungrateful at all--this is one great site and I thank all contributors, especially Charlie Miller--but I'm partial to this copy over the CM only because Uncle John's Band is complete on this one. It has a pretty great sound, also (granted not nearly as good to my ears as the CM). But this one is still worlds better than just a straight forward aud copy. Great work!

Show changed me
Read where another commenter said he and friends went out in the woods and played this one on a boom box tripping.
Maybe its the night I was there, doubt it cause do not recognize the name. But that's how this show changed my life. We were young and loving this band. A high school friends cousin was into them big time he brought us some mind bending things from the west coast and we all kicked back and threw this one on.
As one can imagine we were full flight by the time the Dark Star > Other One > Lovelight hit us Like a freight train. In the way only this band can hit someone. We would throw our own home made acid tests to this show never did it come together like the 1st time.
This show can only get 5 stars no less ever.
